Looking at ken hess's previous articles this top 10 is hardly surprising.

Poor journalism from a poor site

What is a Mact ? First time I see it.

The "10" are the same thing.

This list goes into the Top 10 list of the Worst top ten lists of all time about Apple.

So based on this, his hypothesis is:

wait 11 months for Black Friday to buy whatever garbage surplus is out there from any retailer > wait for Apple products anytime of the year

And on Friday will he release the top 10 reasons why Apple doesn't celebrate cyberMonday? I am seriously not eating until that happens

Does ZDnet actually pay these writers?


I could write a better and more interesting article while taking a s***t on the toilet.

Lucky I bailed on that banal mess early.

I should be so lucky. I could do better when I'm high and it would be more fun to read.

Found this in the comments, from the author:

"BF [Black Friday] is all about discounts my friend. Apple offers none. They don't do anything special for BF. BF isn't just about a bit of advertising or longer store hours, it's about getting a deal."

Perhaps actually visit the site and make sure before publishing a controversial article? Geez...
